As a mom, I am excited to see my kids go back to school, but getting everyone up and ready and out the door isn’t always an easy task. The key to a stress-free day is getting that routine down pact. So, here are my tips for making the back to school routine easy!

Lay Clothes out the Night Before
I can’t stress how much of a lifesaver this is. Lay out all the clothes the night before for the entire house.
Not only does this cut down on time spent looking for something to wear, but if you have a larger family, this makes it easier to get one person up at a time.
Make Breakfast Simple
Making a big breakfast every morning takes time. If you want a good breakfast, but need it to be fast, consider creating a breakfast station so your kids can easily serve themselves their own breakfast! Our station consists of a canister of granola and dried fruit, next to our coffee!! We can have breakfast ready in seconds!
Have a Time Limit in the Bathroom
One of the hardest things about getting ready in the morning is trying to get everyone in and out of the bathroom. Set a time limit for each person in the house and wake up in enough time to get everyone in and out. For boys 15-20 minutes should work well. For girls, you may need to do 30-40 minute intervals.
Make Lunches the Night Before
If you pack school lunches, don’t wait until the morning to get them ready. Make sandwiches, pack sides, and have it all in the lunch box ready for the next day. This will make the mornings easier and you will have less to do.
Make Sure all Backpacks are Packed
If your kids are like mine, they come home with homework and books from school. Instead of leaving the homework on the table all night, make sure your kids put their homework in their bags and pack everything they need for school the night before. This saves time looking for everything in the morning.
Keep the bags by the door so they can grab them on the way out.
Invest in a Keurig® K250 Coffee Brewer
As a mom, coffee is a necessity! When it comes to getting everyone ready and getting your coffee, the Keurig® K250 Coffee Brewer is an essential part of the day and it is perfect for the busy mom.
Keurig K250 Review:
It is compact- The Keurig® K250 Brewer is perfect for your kitchen counters and can sit out without taking up space. I need all of the space I can get.
You can brew a cup faster- with the ability to brew a single cup at a time, you can get your cup of coffee in no time. If you like to have a few more cups in the morning, the four-cup carafe is just a touch of a button. The Keurig® K250 Brewer makes it super easy to brew that cup of coffee as fast as you need it.
The Keurig® K250 Brewer comes in various colors- perfect for any kitchen like: Black, White, Sandy Pearl, Turquoise, Imperial Red, new Peacock Blue, and limited-edition Serenity.
Additionally, Green Mountain Coffee® carefully sources the world’s best coffee, using only the top 10% of coffee beans in the world in their more than 50 distinct varieties of 100% Arabica coffee so you’ll always have your favorite beverage as you’re getting ready for your day.
So many options- another reason I have always been a huge fan of Keurig is that you get so many options for your coffee. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate are just the beginning.
